T shows students two different types of heroes on the WB. One of them is a worldwide hero and the other one is a local hero that all of the class can recognise. And asks Ss to elicit differences between those two heroes.Main point in here is to get the words like 'hero' and 'local'
Ss will see the picture of the local hero of the Tunbridge Wells They are asked to look at the photo and newspaper headlines and answer the questions on the ex.1
Ss listen to the news and check their answers in ex.1. Ss Listen again (if necessary) and tick the information that is mentioned at ex.3 T writes the answer key on the WB in order to be sure that everybody gets the answers.
Ss in groups discuss ; why the superhero hides his identity what his job and age is What does he do when he is not a super hero T makes sure that Ss understand that they will be checking their answers with the second listening activity
T asks Ss to be aware of 2 things while listening the second news. First, if they were correct with their guess and second ask Ss to do ex 2.16; in which they will replace the words in italic with the words they hear. Play the record again, if necessary. T first asks for the answers and have a class discussion. Afterwards give Ss the answer key directly as it will also be helpful for the next teachers class.
T ask students to create their own heroes in groups. And have whole class FB if there is enough time. Or else T monitures them and picks the most interesting story and make them explain it to the class
